IPAC Membership, Commitment & Expectations:
Upon joining the IPAC, an initial two-year active participation commitment is desired for continuity. Members are expected to travel at least two times per year for meetings, usually held in conjunction with the IADLEST Conference and one of the IADLEST business meetings. At one of these meetings, the IPAC will meet with the IADLEST Executive Committee. Members are expected to attend or be represented at all IPAC meetings.
Multiple persons from a Partner organization may participate on the IPAC, but each organization is restricted to one vote. Members are expected to meet all due dates for obligations and deliverables, as established by the IPAC.
IPAC members must be Corporate members of IADLEST in good standing. Realizing that most IPAC members may also be vendors, no discussion of proprietary information or intellectual property will occur, unless it is offered by the vendor who possesses it.
Joining the IPAC:
Any organization that currently supports IADLEST and is a current Corporate member of IADLEST may request to join the IPAC. Such request shall be made in writing to the IADLEST Executive Director and name the individual that will be representing the organization on the IPAC. All requests for membership shall be approved by the IADLEST Executive Committee.
